Lift System - National WWII Museum
The National WWII Museum, is currently ranked by TripAdvisor as #1 of 150 New Orleans attractions, #4 of museums in the United States and #11 of museums worldwide.
The central feature of the museum is the 250-seat Solomon Victory Theatre, the home of Beyond All Boundaries, a 45-minute, 4D multimedia show narrated by executive producer Tom Hanks that tells the story of America's experience of the war in the voices of WWII veterans and eyewitnesses. The theatre provides an immersive experience with elaborate imagery, dazzling effects, CGI animation, multi-layered environments and first-person accounts from the trenches to the Home Front read by actors Brad Pitt, Tobey Maguire, Gary Sinise, and more. Intended to be a factual retelling of the stories of the people who were there, everything was vetted by historians, and great care was taken to be absolutely true to the history and the facts.
Giving depth to the illusion are special effects that work in concert with the action on-screen and a host of physical props that are revealed by lighting when they fly overhead or emerge from the pit. The Normandy D-Day landing is the most elaborately realized battle scene. The film imagery interplays with physical set pieces: five tank traps rising up from the pit. Serapid provided the custom lift that drives an Auschwitz guard tower scenic element that rises out of the pit in front of the scrim, and others that raise and lower the Tokyo skyline scenic profiles behind the scrim.
